I am currently with AT&T and looking to switch due to cost and issues with coverage, especially at my home in a semi-rural area. Before signing up with Ting, I tried out a SIM from Mint (a T-Mobile MVNO). I was able to directly compare coverage between the two networks at once since my Nokia 7.1 is a dual-SIM phone, and T-Mobile's signal was worse than AT&T most of the time. At home, AT&T has virtually no service; T-Mobile has literally no service.
So, you can imagine my dismay when I popped the Ting SIM into Slot 2 and it came up as T-Mobile.
I basically have 2 questions: 1. Is T-Mobile the only GSM network for Ting? And 2: If I want to switch over to the Verizon network, I assume I'm looking at a new phone?
Thanks in advance!
